R&S ZNA Vector Network Analyzer wins award
Rohde & Schwarz has announced its R&S ZNA Vector Network Analyzer, a purely touch-display operated analyser, has been recognised in the Electronics Industry Awards. In the third year of ceremony, hosted online for the first time, the Rohde & Schwarz analyser took home an award in the Test, Measurement & Inspection Product of the Year category.
This category recognises a test, measurement and inspection product that has made a significant impact on the market and shows exceptional performance and innovation.
Commenting on the award, Jamie Lunn, Product Manager Network Analysis at Rohde & Schwarz said: “We are delighted that our product has received prestigious success at the Electronics Industry Awards. The R&S ZNA represents a new generation of high-end vector network analysers which combine outstanding RF performances with easy measurement setup. This award recognises the technological innovation that Rohde & Schwarz strives for and marks a significant achievement for us.”
The R&S ZNA Vector Network Analyzer provides a universal test platform for characterising active and passive devices under test. It offers four internal, phase-coherent sources, allowing independent control of the signal's frequency at each port as well as phase measurements on mixers. It provides two internal LO sources, a true multichannel receiver architecture, pulse generators and modulators, an internal combiner and comprehensive trigger and synchronisation capabilities.
The R&S ZNA offers a dynamic range of up to 170 dB (typ. with options), essential for measurements on high-rejection filters. Across the aerospace and defence sector, the analyser is suited not only to active and passive components, but also transmitter/receiver modules, converter and satellite subsystems. It can be used in antenna measurement systems, as well as for antenna characterisation.
The R&S ZNA is a touch-operated vector network analyser, using a 12.1" touchscreen as the main display and a seven inch touchscreen instead of a hardkey panel. Together with the DUT-centric approach, the second touchscreen provides a seamless user experience.
The new R&S ZNA26 and R&S ZNA43 high-end vector network analysers are available from Rohde & Schwarz.
